Bean, corn and lemon grass soup

(Serves 2-4)

I know quite a few people have been waiting for this recipe to be uploaded, so here we go!

My mom wanted me to call this Nina’s Healing soup. It was mainly due to the ingredients being so good for you. It has loads of nutrients and has a decent bite to it and we all know chili is good for the soul!

What you’ll need

2 TBS                     olive oil

1                              white onion, diced

2                              cloves of garlic, minced

2 tsp                      fresh ginger, grated

4 cups                   vegetable stock

2 small                  lemongrass stalks, chopped into 3-4 cm pieces

1 can                     sweetcorn in brine

1 can                     butter beans, drained and rinsed

1 tsp                      turmeric

2                             red chilies, de-seeded and chopped

½ tin                      coconut milk

Salt and pepper to taste

Fresh chilies to serve

Dash of sriracha to serve

How to do it:

  1. In a medium sized saucepan, heat up the olive oil. Fry the onions and garlic until translucent.
  2. Add the ginger and stir to combine.
  3. Add the vegetable stock and lemongrass stalks. Let this simmer for about 20-30 minutes until aromatic.
  4. Add the corn, beans, turmeric, chilies and coconut milk. Stir through and let simmer for another 10 minutes.
  5. Serve with freshly chopped red chilies and a sprinkle of coconut shavings and a dash of sriracha.

I hope you guys enjoy this recipe as much as my Dad did 🙂
